Hello guys! Here’s your weekly dose of quotes featuring the book “God’s Word, Our Story” published by Crossway. Enjoy and God bless!

“The highest joy for the people of God was and is to be at home in God’s city. And that is God’s joy as well.” – Nancy Guthrie, God’s Word, Our Story

“God has always been and always will be about the work of bringing people from every tribe, tongue, and nation to himself.” – Nancy Guthrie, God’s Word, Our Story

“We can face disappointment and disaster, and ultimately we can face death strengthened in the knowledge that our lives cannot be ruined, they cannot be snuffed out. Our names will not be, cannot be, blotted out from God’s book.” – Nancy Guthrie, God’s Word, Our Story

“God speaks to us, revealing to us who he is and what he has done, helping us understand who we are in relationship to him, through his written Word.” – Nancy Guthrie, God’s Word, Our Story

“Oh, that God might raise up men and women in our day who are hungry for the book—hungrier for the book than we are for an inspirational or entertaining experience, hungrier for the book than we are for Pinterest-worthy aesthetics, hungrier for the book than for good advice to solve what we see as our most significant problems; hungry to hear God’s voice break through the busyness of raising children, the ding of  another email message arriving, the draw of popular bloggers; willing to let God set the agenda of the conversation; open to what he says even if it doesn’t sit well; invested in growing in a right understanding; convinced that what he says is the truest truth, the most solid foundation, the most nourishing food; and certain that his promises are our surest expectation and that obeying his commands will generate our deepest joys.” – Nancy Guthrie, God’s Word, Our Story

“The deeper your understanding of God’s Word goes, the more his Word becomes interwoven into the fabric of your life and the more you experience his strength.” – Nancy Guthrie, God’s Word, Our Story

“Just as the man who built his house upon the rock by working the Word into his life was strengthened so that when the storm came, his house did not fall (Matt. 7:25), you will be strengthened to face the inevitable storms of life as you hear, understand, and live in light of God’s Word.” – Nancy Guthrie, God’s Word, Our Story
